Travis Johns, Myo, Borborites
Travis Johns is a composer and sound artist from San Francisco, Ca., currently living in San José, Costa Rica. Using a combination of processed field recordings, prepared guitar and homebuilt analog electronics, he attempts to weave textural tapestries of gestures, thoughts and experiences into a singular mass of infinite sonic possibilities, often nested somewhere between the stylistic footholds of free improvisation, dark ambient and harsh noise - sounding something like the distant swarming of well oiled mechanical bees woven with fissures of dark tones and noise rips. Active in the field of experimental music for nearly a decade, Johns' music has been performed to a variety of audiences in the US and abroad, sharing bills with a varied cast of musicians, ranging from Nels Cline to Zbingiew Karkowski to Caroliner Rainbow, with releases on numerous record labels including Thinktank Media, Vox Novus and Shinkoyo Records.
